Title text: Guest comic by David Troupes of Buttercup Festival, who is living in that lovely tree outside your window.

[edit] Explanation

This comic is a commentary on relationships. The woman Megan is perfectly happy sitting on the moon (not possible by the way) with Cueball, the person she loves. Cueball, however, is not completely happy until he pegs a former bully with a rock that he shoots from the moon with his slingshot.

David Troupes is the author of the webcomic Buttercup Festival.

Guest Week was a series of five comics written by five other comic authors. They were released over five consecutive days (Monday-Friday); not over the usual Monday/Wednesday/Friday schedule.
The five comics are:

[edit] Transcript

[Megan and Cueball are leaning against each other, sitting on top of a giant moon in a black star dotted sky. Trees are visible towards the bottom of the panel.]
[The scene broadens.]
Megan: I've never been so happy. I—
Cueball: Hold on—that guy used to dump my notebooks in high school. Give me a moment. Try to keep the moon steady.
[A rock hits a Cueball-like guy on the ground on the back of the head.]
[The guy clutches the back of his head.]
[Back to the moon again, where Cueball is leaning his head against Megan while holding a slingshot]
Cueball: I've never been so happy.

Could the 'Woman' be Megan? 173.245.54.190 16:20, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

Maybe David Troupes wants to make the woman be Megan but can't because he doesn't know how to draw the typical Megan hair we use to identify her. 103.22.200.215 02:25, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

Or she could just be a generic person. It seems like a better idea to presume that a character is a generic unless specifically indicated. -Pennpenn 108.162.249.205 02:21, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

Any woman in xkcd with long black hair is Megan by definition. Megan is not the same person from comic to comic but the generic every woman to Cueballs everyman. Read on the pages for Megan and Cueball. As well as on Multiple Cueballs (see the categories) --Kynde (talk) 09:06, 21 April 2015 (UTC)
